Did you see the song he performed that night on the show? 'Back Home Again in Indiana.' Also on Jerry's 1974 solo album, released a few months after this Carson video.

Have you ever seen an actor in a movie who looked as out of place as Campbell did in 'True Grit?' His participation in that movie, or for that matter the acting profession, is proof anything's possible.

No. I went back and checked them out though.
Here is Glenn at 13 minutes

His Sinatra story is funny.

Here is Jerry at 1 hour :09 with Vassar Clements and Grisman too. I never had that one on my copy

I think I heard Hoagie Carmichael sing that in a movie with George Raft

Crap. I forgot it was a bonus track on the re-release, and not on the original issue.
Campbell rushes through it like the place was on fire and he needed to finish before he could leave. I dig his leisure suit though.

Obviously you haven't seen George Strait. Or John Denver for that matter. :)

Where have you been? Humungo hits. And sequels!

In George Strait's case it's almost like his face has too much Botox or something. He runs the emotional gamut from a to b is how they used to say it.

"He'll be great as long as he doesn't have to, you know,...act."
I take strength from Strait's self assessment of the proposal: ‘What do I have to gain? I sell a lot of albums. I’ve got a great life. What is this going to do for me? And I don’t know how to act.'
He deserves credit at least for not being delusional.

As for John Denver in 'Oh God,' ... I revere Carl Reiner so I'm just going to move forward in my life holding close the idea that he had nothing to do with the casting.

Ha--good one...on the other hand, I always liked Sinatra in From Here to Eternity (not great, but good, a nice fit for the movie role w M. Clift). Some singers do okay w the crossover...

Absolutely. Except he had the skills and showed it early and then got pushed into cheese. I've read he was quite frustrated. Oh well, that was 50 years ago. :)

The Cheese was related to him thinking with
some other part of his body besides his brain.
(Which applies to the DON as well.)
And there but for the Grace of God go I.

You are right I vaguely remember a few Black & white Elvis pictures
which were actually very well done. One connected with his time in the military.
and the one with 'jail house rock' was entertaining and larger than life.

but I also remember some flick with him in Hawaii 'flying' a helicopter and getting into random bar fights,

You nailed it. Couple westerns too. But I like the Hawaii ones cause I lived in Honolulu for 6 years and I enjoy looking the places before lots of folks like me invaded.

When it comes to talented country-pickers why tried their hand at the movies, I always loved Jerry Reed. Nailed the "yeah, I'm a country hick and I don't care what you think" persona.

That was fantastic, thanks for posting! Smokey & the Bandit was my favorite movie when I was a kid and I had no idea Campbell & Reed were such good guitar players.

Mull of Kintyre is a great McCartney tune and one I've never seen covered before. This post was modified by billydlions on 2019-08-13 22:40:39

thanks for the thanks. I like that video alot and have watched it a bunch. Like SDH said Reed is a natural.
All the songs they do together are really great, good singing playing and fun.Jerry Reed seemed happy with Glenn doing his song too. Bagpipes, who knew.
A lot of talent there with the band and all for prime time TV

They filmed some of S&B II right here in my home town which is where Burt lived and went to school. It's cool seeing some of the streets before the masses moved here. Unfortunately the movie wasn't very good.
